Default WHOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!

As soon as I call and get the balance, we will be officially CREDIT CARD DEBT FREE!!!! We just got our tax return back, which is enough to pay it off completely, plus pay for our trip to Florida we have planned in October (Well, the airfare and tickets to either busch gardens or disney).

Next up, we are movingon to our HELOC and then onto DH's car.

The great part about all this is that we're actually living within our means and have no reason to start charging stuff up again. It's been super hard at times! I love shopping for the boys and LOVE taking a few hours to hit the outlet malls and spend $100 or so on the kids clothes. However, now I just know when I can do it, and I also know when they actually *need* stuff or not.

I've probably made close to $300 on e-bay. I've been taking advantage of the free listing fees (no charge unless you sell). I need to keep going.

I've also noticed that selling things and paying off our debt or using that money directly FOR something (like Matthew's getting a new bed and I used e-bay money to redecorate his room) helps lessen the blow of the fact that we're done with babies. I don't feel like I'm "losing" things but like I'm trading up!

That is awesome! I love the idea of "trading up" and I am glad that is making it a bit easier for you.
Go you!
